PAPERS, PLEASE.

Greetings friends! And welcome to the latest installment of our all-new, Spicer-approved, super-big-league, 45-friendly, all-holds-barred blogcast! Here at MBR, we henceforth vow to throw no further shade on the short-tempered, the stubby-fingered, the orange-hued, the willfully ignorant, the comically corrupt, or the colossally stupid among us, because, hey man, we're just a bunch of granola-munching bike mechanics and no one wants to hurt any feelings here, right?

Oh, and fascists. Yeah. Can't forget the fascists.

...

Aaaaaaand cue all the shade!

Hope you're all still alive and well, folks. It's been a rocky few months, but MBR's back at it...


BLACKENED FRIDAY SALE + BOLD BIKE BUDGET

HAPPY DEEP FRYER PURCHASING DAY!

What's that? You say you don't deep fry your turkey? Man, you're missing out. Better get onboard the Crispy Turkey Train, like ASAP.

Because we're Americans, damnit. (After Nov. 8th, maybe now more than ever *shudder*.) And that means that we don't pass up an opportunity to make food both tastier and more likely to clog arteries.

 

This guy gets it.

 Wait.

The f*&% am I doing?

You know what?

No.

Nope, not this time.

 

Today, dear reader, I don't care.

Today, the burden is on you.

Today, I only have three questions to ask:

 

Did you bike to work today? How about this week? This month?

 

If you answered yes to any of these, pat yourself on the back, pour your beverage of choice, and please continue reading. You've earned...

HIGH ON DRY + BIKE MONTH

Good day, my salubrious cyclenauts! My bikefaced besties! My wizards and warriors of the weirdness that is the daily two-wheeled commute. What a lovely day it is! And hey, just for checking out today's blog?

You get a racoon on a tiny bicycle:

 

Gotta keep traffic up somehow, right?

 

With the coldest and wettest days behind us, we look forward to a new doomsday hell of climate change the likes of which this planet has never seen a fresh springtime start on the streets and in The Shop!

Business is kicking; the tracks are drying;...
